The Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.7.2 Tech Report

Last week, AMD invited us to a tech briefing on a massive update of Radeon Software – the new Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.7.2. They conducted it via conference call, running through 60+ slides in just over 34 minutes.

You must be wondering – what on Earth could AMD have to talk about Radeon Software to rate so many presentation slides. A LOT, as it turns out. So much so that the tech briefing was conducted by three AMD speakers. For your convenience, we created a video of their presentation to better understand everything they covered. Check it out!
